Gloucestershire Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (GRASAC) has won a £1,000 Movement for Good award thanks to nominations from the public.

GRASAC is one of 500 winners in specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million to charities this summer. Members of the public were invited to nominate causes close to their hearts, with 500 gifts of £1,000 available for donation. 13,695 charities were nominated by an amazing 253,879 members of the public.
GRASAC will use the donation to fund group work that will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.
Maggie Stewart, Director of GRASAC noted her thanks to all those that voted for the service – ‘we are delighted that we were voted for in large number by the public and that this has enabled us to be given this award. For us, it demonstrates that we support clients across Gloucestershire well and will continue to do so effectively, particularly during this difficult time.’
Mark Hews, group chief executive at Ecclesiastical, said: “We would like to thank every single person who took the time to nominate a good cause as part of our Movement for Good awards. Ecclesiastical is a unique financial services group. We are owned by a charity which means all available profits can be given to the good causes that are so important to our customers. As a company whose purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society, charitable giving is at the heart of our business. We know that £1,000 can make a huge difference to the incredible work that charities do and we’re looking forward to seeing how this financial boost will change lives for the better.”
